    Yes - that was why it did not come up on my D4 search - I knew the SCV6 existed but not about it being in Aust.

    I believe it was 2012 but I would suggest you do your own research.

    OK Thanks. It would appear that the problem is not that major and that 2013 MY> is fitted with an improved chain tensioner from new. The tensioner is however still a wear part that you should keep an eye / ear on.

    which engine

    If you can save 5000 euros buying a petrol Disco, that will go a long way towards paying for the extra fuel cost. And you don't have to worry about crankshaft breakage, DPF, EGR, or being refused entry to certain cities. I say go for it.

    cheers

    Currently living/working in the UAE. There are some very good vehicles available here and the local community seems to have a strong preference for new rather than used, hence many second hand vehicles are exported. Just a point of caution, make sure any vehicle you are considering has a thorough Landrover service history. Conditions here are tough on vehicles (heat and dust). LR recommends 13,000k servicing (or more frequent) and this is around all filters needing regular changes to avoid clogging. Also expect to throw away tires if the are not brand new. Road surface temps above 50 C are normal - kills tires.

    If the vehicle has been used off road - then it will have been in heavy loose sand conditions which is tough on engines. Having said that, very few UAE vehicles actually spend much time off-road.

    Also if the vehicle you are considering is more than 4 - 5 years old - make sure it was originally delivered new in the UAE as a GCC spec vehicle. Importers in the UAE bring in new vehicles from other countries and sell them for 10 - 20% below normal retail. These vehicles are not specced for high temperature and high dust conditions, so can become prone to problems down the track.

    Best of luck!
